Subject: Re: What about teaching factoring: ax^3+ bx^2 y + cxy^2 + dy^3



Have you tried , the student edition of MATHEMATICA from Wolfram
Research (http://www.wolfram.com/) . This is a stand-alone software,
which you can purchase from them. This is the best breed of
Computer Algebra Systems. Commands are easy to learn, such as:
    factor('ax^3+ bx^2 y + cxy^2 + dy^3'),
and middle steps are shown up to the answer. The other one that rival
MATHEMATICA is called MAPLE from MapleSoft (Canada). They are both
excellent.

I hope it helps.

Cheers,
Sione.
